Set in 1953 and traveling to 1985, this lovely and poignant memory play unfolds through the eyes of Clifford, the only son of Gene, a jazz trumpet player, and Terry, an alcoholic mother. Alternating between their New York City apartment and a smoke-filled music club, Clifford narrates the story of his disfunctional family and the decline of jazz as popular entertainment. Side Man is a beautiful story of broken homes, broken dreams, and the ability to forgive.
